3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured a muddy pale straw color with a small rocky head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of sour dough-like malts with freshly made apple juice, dried banana’s, lemon sorbet, cinnamon and some straw. Flavor was similar to aroma with a sour-dough bitterness, lemon zest, fresh apple juice, hints of pears, dried banana’s (mild), straw and some cinnamon. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/creamy mouthfeel, watery texture and a good finish. Quite sessionable.

...bottle from some bottleshop. Nice flavor, mainly from the wheat malt. Head lacks retention, fades too quickly for a Hefe. Bannana notes, slight spicyness makes this a decent attempt at the father of all beer styles, the Hefe-Weizen. Worth a try, but very expensive.

One of our favourite stops on our Tasmania tour. The owner has committed himself to providing a total sensory experience with his Morilla Estates winery, restaurant, microbrewery, accomodations, and gallery. He has succeeded on all levels. The wines are terrific, the accomodations were the best we had on our whole trip, the food was amazing, and all of the beers are good, and some are even outstanding. The bottles are nicely designed, resembling little champagne flagons, and the labels are beautifully artistic. The average beer drinker is not the marketing target here. This hefe is a solid example of the style, but not the best of the Moo Brews. It pours a hazy straw yellow with a dense white merangue. Big aromas of bananas and spices, light and lively on the palate. Refreshing.

Fancy looking 330ml wine bottle thingy.Pours a hazy straw body reminisant of a Belgian white. Fresh aroma full of banana, tropical fruits, vanilla and spice. Slightly chewy palate packed with flavour. Banana, pineapple, grass, vanilla flavours, with a yeasty finish. I quite like this one.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2007 Very cloudy and yellow in colour. A frothy white head at first which quickly quickly disappeared leaving no lacing. A pleasant fruity aroma with a hint of banana. Lightly carbonated with a light to medium body. A rather sweet and fruity taste with only a mild bitterness.

Felt this was a bit overrated, although perhaps I’m a bit spoiled for wheat beer since coming back from Germany. (actually, I think it was the pale ale people were raving about, but unfortunately i missed out on that one after breaking the top off the bottle when trying to open it, and wasn’t keen on a mouthful of broken glass... shame). Anyway, principal strength of this one is that it manages to exude the aroma of both a compost heap and a floral bouquet simultaneously. Not sure how, but there you go.
